Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

Igot so excited when I rounded the house this weekend to find my forsythia bush blooming! I immediately cut several stems to take the place of the faux flowers I wrote about only days before on my post “Five Tips for Displaying Faux Flowers.”

This cheery card is a perfect way to brighten someone's day. . . complete with a little shaker surprise!

I took an old canning jar, a partial can of off-white spray paint, twine and twigs and quickly whipped up a cute little country-style home decor.

    Chapter 5: Another Weight Watchers Milestone or Two

    Last night I reached two milestones in my weight loss journey and I have some new bling to show for it!

Throw some confetti and toot some horns, because this mama is knockin’ down the pounds and buying new clothes.
